Distilleria Gualco, Silvano d'Orba

(4.8/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Founded in 1870, Distilleria Gualco has been the property of the same family for generations.

Look for flavored grappas and grappa-based liqueurs, which offer a full-bodied sweet taste without being too sugary. Many of the distillery's recipes for making these products were developed by Bartolomeo Gualco, a legendary grappa master. You'll need to make prior arrangements for tasting sessions and guided tours, but you can drop into the shop any day of the week, including Saturday and Sunday.

  • Make a visit to this former is practically mandatory. It's a very special Distillery, great products for everyone. I've often given these grappas to friends and family and I've always received great appreciation. Many of them have become their customers.

  • My husband and I have for the past twenty years loyal customers of these excellent grappas. As every year on the occasion of the opening of the distillery to the public we would like to take the opportunity to see, the process of production of spirits who routinely consume and family placed sure make a welcomed gift. The production process we know it by heart but it's always exciting to see him. The grappas are delicious and of high quality. Their tasting is always top notch. This year it was possible to sample their new production the vermouth a true excellence that we recommend to many to try. Thanks for the beautiful day that you organized.
